Hey there, it’s been a while! Wanted to let everyone know that this has been a hiatus rather than permanently stepping away from blogging. The good news is that I’ve been working on project that’s going to be published as an ebook, and that has been taking up all my limited free time and writing energy. I can’t really say much about it now – once it’s all ready to go I’ll talk about it more – but I’m pretty excited about it!
On the dating front, nothing new to report since my first foray into the dating pool fizzled out. I have to admit it really bummed me out for quite a while, especially the realization that the way my life is right now, how busy it is with full-time work, part-time work, and visitation with the kids, might just not be at all compatible with dating. I mean, I connected with a really awesome woman through OKCupid and was unable to give her the time she needed and deserved. How terrible is that? It was incredibly frustrating.
I was chatting with a friend the other day whom I hadn’t talked to in a while, and he asked about how things were going with the woman, and I told him that we’d ended it and why. I concluded that perhaps I’m just destined to be alone until the kids get older and I’m able to cut back further on the working all the time, and can actually get in synch with other single people out there.
He said that was nonsense, and that there are likely women out there who are just as busy as I am, that probably feel a lot like I do, and are in a situation where they don’t have a lot of time to give but still want some level of companionship.
Hm. Maybe he’s right? I’ve been pondering revamping my OKCupid profile, and being up front about the constraints on my time. While I imagine that will make the pool of interested women considerably smaller, there might be someone in the same niche as me that’ll think a “local, long-distance relationship” is exactly what she’s looking for at this point in her life.
So what’s new with all of you? What have I missed?
